Saints beat Packers in opener, 38-3
On the first play of the third quarter, Adams picked up a 5-yard defensive pass interference penalty on Paulson Adebo. Tight end Josiah Deguara was injured after attempting a cut-back block on the next play, a 3-yard run by Aaron Jones.
After Deguara walked off on his own power (he was later ruled out with a concussion), Valdes-Scantling caught a 10-yard pass down the seam to convert the first down. Rodgers rolled left off play action and hit a wide-open Lewis for 19 yards to the New Orleans 38.
A 7-yard screen pass to Aaron Jones set up third-and-3. The Packers chose to go for it after an incompletion to Valdes-Scantling. A defensive pass interference penalty on Malcolm Jenkins against Robert Tonyan led to a first down at the Saints' 25.
Green Bay got down to the New Orleans 12 before Adebo picked off Rodgers under heavy pressure on second down and returned it 33-yards to the Saints' 40. It was the Packers' first red-zone turnover since Week 6 of the 2019 season.
Eric Stokes had good coverage against Adam Trautman on third-and-11 to force the punt and get the Packers' defense off the field with 6:11 left in the third quarter.
The Packers were backed up to their own 5 after the punt and Rodgers would again be picked off with safety Marcus Williams corralling a deep ball intended to Valdes-Scantling on third-and-8. Williams returned it to the Green Bay 12.
The Saints turned the takeaway into points, with Winston finding Chris Hogan in the back of the end zone for a 10-yard TD on third-and-8 to put the Saints up 24-3 with 3:07 left in the third quarter.
On the next play, the Packers turned it over on downs deep in their own after attempting to go for it on fourth-and-1 from their own 22.
Darnell Savage appeared to intercept Winston on third-and-9 but Za'Darius Smith was flagged for roughing the passer on a hit that was neither late nor helmet-to-helmet.
